The Basics of Key Management
"We haven't done a Basics episode in a while. I've had a couple of people ask me some questions that made me realize something that I was a little... that we haven't come back to with the Basics is just kind of the really simple, really practical, what the hell do I do with my keys? So we went into an entire episode on what our keys are and hardware, wallets, and all of that good stuff. And I will tell you straight off the bat, you need a hardware wallet if you have any meaningful savings. If you're just tinkering, that's fine. Don't give yourself a homework assignment and, you know, have to invest all this money and stuff into it if you're just playing around. But it's very easy to get sucked in and it's very easy for playing around to become a meaningful amount of money in Bitcoin. In fact, a good example actually was I was playing around with the Bitkit wallet, which is one that I'm a big fan of and I'm really looking forward to its future. And Synonym and John Carvalho and their team over there have built a really amazing and really intuitive product. But I was just testing a bunch of stuff out. So when I moved some Bitcoin to it, it was always intended to just be kind of a throwaway wallet. And I actually at some point took a screenshot of my backup seed and put it in the Discord chat with everyone in Synonym because we were we were trying to work something out. I can't remember what it was, some weird little quirk with the interface or whether it was showing addresses or something like that. I don't remember. It wasn't that big of a deal. But because I was thinking of the wallet so cheaply as just like throwaway, I did that. But what's funny is I, you know, was testing all out. So I added a bunch of contacts and, you know, I started making messages with people and, you know, all these things. And I started trying out a bunch of different widgets. And it got to the point where I'd kind of forgotten that I had done that. And then I just moved a little bit of Bitcoin to move a little bit more Bitcoin to it and eventually ended up with like eight hundred dollars worth of Bitcoin on it. And my seed is sitting in a screenshot in a Discord room that I don't know if 30 people or I have no idea how many people are in that Discord chat could see and just and so many multiple people may have just out of trying to help me put it in their wallets. So I was just totally exposed. I was just like putting cash in other people's pockets. Nobody stole it from me or anything. And I just woke up one morning and it hit me and I was like, oh my God, I'm an idiot. And I withdrew it back to my nunchuck. But just a easy little story to explain that you need to be careful with your keys and you need to have basic practice on how you're going to back things up. You need to know how you're going to be treating your wallet going

Q&A: How Can I Launch a Set of Unique Enamel Pins?
"Is the most effective way of launching by enamel brain pins wholesale and getting them into the right hands at museum and hospital gift shops nationally. The pens are high. Quality enamel designed by me manufactured. In china they are loved by neuroscientists neurologists psychologists and others. Who work with the brain or people who have brain injuries or illnesses. I thought about emailing links and sending samples in fun and different packaging. Or i'm also wondering if i should go the more traditional route of the big expensive gift show. Thanks so much for all you do to help all of us out here. it's invaluable. thank you so much laura. you're awesome congratulations on going fulltime. I think you said you're doing that this month or soon. At least i'll listeners. I want to encourage you to check out laura's site one because we want to support her but also because it's a really good example here. Laura bundesbahn dot com. Bunsen be indy. Espn dot com and my first comment here before we talk about the new line of products. My first comment is i really respect her pricing. Like laura's work is not cheap. She's doing some really beautiful art. A lot of it has mixed media and it sells for a good amount of money. Like i'm looking at these pieces on the site. And i'm seeing eight hundred dollars nine hundred and fifty dollars thirty six hundred dollars. Three thousand six hundred fifteen hundred dollars etc so some really beautiful art and she's not afraid to sell it for a good price so good for her. She probably wouldn't be able to go full time. She was selling this work for fifty to one hundred dollars each also. This kind of pricing allows for some investing in marketing and some experiments especially when it comes to launching a new product line like launching these new enamel pins and so my that was my first thought about i respect the pricing. My second thought. As i heard the question was have you tried exhibiting and then at the end she mentioned the big expensive gift show you know. I think it's a risk. Nothing is guaranteed but might you regret it if you didn't try and if it were me in this situation i think i would which would tell me. Oh i should definitely try it. I think this is the time in which you invest it in which you are willing to do. Some more extensive experiments reaching out to her target market and sending physical samples. So i think she mentioned something about that. Kind of outreach. I would send physical samples of the pins not just a link or i might email and ask if i could send a physical sample just so a bit. More of a relationship has been established since it's ultimately a physical product. She wants to sell. And i assume it will be a lot lower price than the handcrafted one of a kind art that she also sells probably gonna help to see it in
The Downfall of Enron
"After nine am in early december sherron. Watkins arrived at enron headquarters. She squeezes past local news. Crews as they set up tripods she takes home to gaze. The various cameras trained on reporters. Standing patiently with their microphones in hand. Ready to go live walking. Shakes her head. She never thought she'd lived to see the day. When the downfall of a corporation would attract the same level of coverage as a natural disaster she and hers and ron's main lobby. She expected a grim scene but nothing could have prepared her for this shell shocked former. Employees had towards the doors in a mass exodus their personal effects piled into cardboard boxes. Any of them have put their boxes on the seats of eight hundred dollar office chairs. They're wheeling out like shopping carts. Men and women weep openly the layoffs have begun walk walking systems. Sure where to go what to do or who to talk to. She's waiting for the elevator. When a man approaches she recognizes him. I can't remember from where as they step into the elevator. He reminds her that. He's one of the company's lawyers now that enron is bankrupt. He says with a smirk. It's lawyers are the only ones with job. Security walk ins wonders. Exactly what that means for her as the doors open to her floor. He tells her not to worry her job safe for another month at least walk ins asks. Why man raises his eyebrows. As if he's just been asked the dumbest question in the world and ron still needs her. He says she'll probably be asked to appear in court as lawsuits against enron begin to land in the coming weeks after all. You're the one who tried to warn. Lay the company was in danger right. You're famous

"eight hundred dollar" Discussed on Dogma Debate
"It's not a f- a paranormal phenomena. I usually think it's just something physical. So i have to prove to myself but then if you can't seem to explain with your eyes or nose or your senses that we use if you can't explain it with that do you then go will then. It must be this like a a a metaphysical type of thing when usually some type of communication with me. Because i'm i'm a communicator. It's usually on my spirit team. Tried to communicate something to me. And sometimes they don't know the language dissemble diary so You know every situation is different. You know. I guess. I'm not quite understanding your question. I think we'll just move on I i think. I think pointed so like on my show. A lot of times people do what's called the the god of the gaps fallacy and. Let's say someone comes on the show to prove that let's say a fundamentalist christian in texas and they wanna come on and say that all gay people should be in prison. And i have proof. Because the bible said in jesus and god said and blah blah blah and as we as we start that debate at any point if it gets too will how do you know that was god it. They they did. What's called the god of the gaps fallacy. Which means if i don't know what it is therefore god right so they'll say they'll say well well You know. I had a big financial problem one year. And then i randomly got an eight hundred dollar check for my insurance company and i prayed about it at some point during that year therefore under god and so if they don't have an explanation that they can see they just fill in that god did it and that starts to add up as proof overtime and then they'll come on my show and go. God has worked so many times in my favor. You have no idea. I have absolute proof of god. And i think delicious point here is that this is like a shocker. Is of the gaps argument where you say. Well i don't know what's causing this issue so therefore it must be the shockers. I think that's what you were getting to. Is that fair. All right okay so those people are do not have very good discernment skills there there are. There is dark and light and now not all spirit activities. God there are people that think.

And i was like that's cool. It's about it. It's called hinting at our next video. It's called pro or shadow other video. Yeah exactly it was a one hundred percent intentional go when you were being reviewing that blogging. That's coming out. Yeah the the Tribes a lot better than it looks does does. It's very agile. I mean it's you know quick rack but the steering the steering is better than the non m cars and there's a huge difference. I think people if you look like an m three forty. It's fast and it handles pretty well but the steering wheel is not there and this isn't super communicative but at least it's like there's no slack the wheel it's very the nose moves when you move the wheel really quickly and it just feels like you just. You can just steer the car. It's going where you wanna go And the resistance is right. It's not too heavy. It's not artificially heavy and then it's not to light. Well we had it on the set to sport. There's a sports setting so so. I don't know whether sport is artificially or comfort is artificially light or the truth is somewhere in the middle. Well they're all artificial to artificial. I think the camaro for me is the biggest offender in make it super heavy. Make it like you're trying to open a door. And the titanic sinking. That's how difficult these being. It always small small small speed things up a little bit a little bit. I mean everyone now is using eps. But it's clear that some you know tune it better than others. So that's how we judge that that's how we judge the car's we judge we. Oh well this is not as good as the porsche. Eps or there's still the best. I think i think so. Yeah i i agree. Still best indicated and across a variety of products to. It's not just like like. Ferraris is really good too. But like you know it's It's it's a pretty focused product range. It's not like i've got a ferrari. Suv yet to judge And mclaren still uses hydraulic. Yeah there's cocoa about yeah. Yeah i wouldn't. If i was mclaren i wouldn't change her steering either. Gt hydraulic as well. I think it is it is. Yeah yeah it's good too but But anyway so. What are we with this three. It's skip the seats. The thirty eight hundred dollar super buckets. Cool they look cool. They look cool they do. Look if if if you if there's a eventually a super you know whatever they had the gts last time wildly overpriced track day special on if they do at gts in the new one and you got those seats that would make some sense but as a sedan as as kazan threes. Like daily driver. It's not needy. Don't buy them three as your special weekend car. That would be dumb. Don't do that. You buy them three daily driver. That's nice and that's those are not the right seats. These are the. Gts's those are the just wanna go shopping. Sorry for those listening like the seats. These are oem gts's picture and it's fixed back carbon bucket. I mean it looks basically like an aftermarket ricardo or spark racy. It's got holes for Harnesses other fifteen thousand dollars. You see that right there at the price. i think. that's what you're getting with. The the m three calm seats are really cool. Can they hold you really well. If you're the m three com seats switched started jay. Hairdresser you are correct like these these. Gts seats are super hardcore.

Yes so they have a pretty clear security videotape which most of the world is seen now like you said the suv. Yeah i and then maybe they just don't release. It could be in now and maybe the plate was covered. I don't know you found out the car was what stolen in may so it was stolen a couple of weeks ago and i. It's it's i don't think hopefully they'll catch these people. I don't know i. I still think it was a gang. Hit it just everything about. It's well your your point was perfect. I mean miami is saying they're afraid of retaliation that that implies it's gang the yeah it's long beef or something it's you it's true because when do you ever speak of retaliation you hear you know. Unfortunately people get shot but you never hear of like oh the wife's go out and retaliate and find the person that shot her husband or shot his wife or you don't hear that this this makes me think it's gang hit which is very sad but i think you're right. It's terrible terrible. Terrible terrible either way. We need good news any over there. Sure i got some good news for you. Please tell me good news because we'll hold some of the wackier stuff for the mysterious nine to ten hour. Okay we'll do that all right. This is the good news section. Are you ready yes. More people have been donating time and money to give back to the local community because of the pandemic really a poll found fifty. Three percent of people did it for the very first time ever last year. Are you kidding me. You would've thought that people would have held back at charities would have been hurt by this right because people were afraid of the paycheck. What's going on or their businesses hurting more than ever people are given back so maybe they'll become a big trend. It'd be nice. I i would have thought. A lot of people would have donated their time as well. You know go work at a charity somewhere or you know you would think sirkin ization and help out somewhere along the line. That's pretty cool and this is we'll have some sound from this coming up again in the nine o'clock hour here just a little bit but there's a couple in la. Oh these two going around to different target stores. And they're hiding cash in paktia diapers to help new parents out this total of about a thousand bucks. I think this would cause a riot. I'm surprised they haven't caused a riot and they've been everywhere and you haven't seen anything bad about being pregnant women. Attacking people are about to have babies or people with babies. Running you know went to target and buying out all the diapers well also. I haven't heard anything from target saying because people must be ripped open boxes right. You would they all right. That's not good. No i thought it was gonna cause mayhem on thinking. Okay you doing this. Just a few more tik toks. I'm like stop bench bench any money there it.

"It's free talk live. Talk radio that you control six zero three two eight three six one six zero. That's the in line you can call and talk about whatever you want. Six zero three two eight three six one six zero with you in the studio tonight. It's aria angie and bonnie and there's so much prep work. I have to do in light of the possibility that you know. Ian has his belt hearing tomorrow. I'm gonna be at my office for it. Because i had a meeting with my appointment when my attorney at one thirty tomorrow anyway so it just makes sense. Since we're both going to view the hearing obviously view it there right which is regrettable because the most contact i can really have with is for him to see my name there as one of the people. They're viewing it to support him. And i won't be able to do that tomorrow because my attorney's office but whatever i expect they're arguing about the the bell amount that they want from him. Despite the fact that cash bill has been gotten rid of in new hampshire. I don't know how that exactly works. How can they require a cash. Bell when new hampshire got rid of cash bill. What do they use instead of cash and they mentioned property yes. They're using cash bill in this case a the prosecutors. I believe it is at two hundred thousand and defense in wants one hundred thousand right so i mentioned the judge is gonna come and say okay. We'll do one hundred and fifty thousand both of you. Neither of you get what you want. Let's move on but that seems to be the only real sticking point about his release at this point. of course. The government's lengthy response about this was like two and a half pages of them talking about why they felt that they couldn't reasonably assure that he would be in court. Even though the judge already has disagreed with that said come at me with conditions but obviously they don't want to do that but they have to because the jordan judge ordered them to and you know. I expect good news tomorrow. I don't know how long it will take all of this to actually get finished so that he can walk free out of the jailhouse but but there's a light which is good and you know that he is like thank goodness yes. I expect good results in the hearing tomorrow. So there's all sorts of stuff that i have to plan for to arrange for and these sheets than i'm holding is one of them because it's been my job for the last year and a half to handle the live schedules and the podcast schedules making sure that they're done meeting. They're catalogued away and making. They're sit the party that needs them. But i can't be here at the studio to do that if ian lives here. So that's going to be difficult. And i can't talk with in to work out these problems because he book needs to sorry like maintain employment. So shouldn't you both be able to talk about free talk live. Could he just go next door to a different place of living and like during the show or during the time that you're here can you not be on the same property. Probably not well. He's under house arrest. Okay so he has to be on his side. I imagine so. I don't know. I don't know how that's gonna work with the duplex. I didn't even think about that. Like we can't go over to kelvin's house together and talk to calvin and his kitchen anymore. But it's still the same house. I imagine you can still go next door. I don't know. Don't i'm not an attorney. I'm setting these conditions. I would just say it seems reasonable that he would be allowed to go next property. Yes it's still the same physical building but who knows all of this will be dealt with but man. It sure would be a lot easier if look willing for the prosecutors to be there for all of the attorneys to be there. Just let me sit down with him so we can work out these issues please. exactly yup. we're there's we just need to talk about how the show is to be done. And then what about. He's not supposed to talk to mark either and that's his right. I mean how is he this. His business partner. They want him to write like they want him more calls himself. Es business partner but free talk live is strictly speaking ins. Yeah but they work very closely together on things. And what's weird is. I'm still allowed contact with mark but it but you know obviously not about the case which is fine. Because i'm not talking to anyone about the case except my attorney but it's weird that they could make the exception for that with mark but they won't make the exception about it with in. I don't know. I'm hoping we can work something out where you know. Hey we have the parole officers. The attorneys the prosecutors. Everyone there in the room so that we can just have this conversation and work all the stuff out that way. Freetalklive is taking care of business and they said that he needed to continue working and the judge might not even improve their condition that he can't talk to mark some. We don't even know for sure that he won't be able to talk to mark yet but so those are not set in stone yet. Those are just saying that they were recommending. That's okay yeah. I was under the impression that the defense hit could relate to most of the conditions. Though that will that's true. Yeah he's not really arguing any of them. I don't think except the one hundred thousand two hundred thousand thing. I don't blame him because whatever the conditions are out here. They're infinitely better than conditioning gel. So hopefully that will be worked out and hopefully and we'll be back on free talk live next week. I'm english carl that would be fantastic. That'd be crazy crypto currency. Though i can't look into crypto currency or what it's doing anything like i haven't actually asked whether or not i can look at bitcoin prices. I can't imagine why would be declined. That but i think my supervisor officer would come back with the question. What does it matter to you. You can't do anything about it so in a in a way. It doesn't really matter to me. But i'm curious and i like knowing what these things are doing. Evidently you saw a crip. Bitcoin fall below thirty thousand. Yeah it was like like two thousand nine thousand something. I'm trying to look to see if i could find the exact glow. But i don't see it Something reference a twenty four hour low as thirty thousand two hundred and one so it didn't go below thirty well. It depends on which market you're looking at probably at. It may have gone down below thirty one exchange or one wallet. Whatever not make sense. I didn't think about that. It's just like one year ago was around thirty thousand so it's not even like it's really down what i don't even think it was five hundred like six grand or something because i remember one year ago about seven time because i remember looking at it and i was like wow people should really by some crypto when they get their tax money back i remember because it was about made the third or the fourth that i got the twelve hundred dollars stimulus check and i recommended everyone by bitcoin. Kind of keeping track of assists and it was. It was about seven thousand dollars. When i said that. Oh well so. If about twelve hundred dollars worth of bitcoin then what would it be worth now at at the moment. If it's about forty thousand dollars. Which i think is what is that. Yeah it would be seven thousand dollars. Bitcoin that would be a great investment with your stimulus money. It would have been of course. We're not financial advisers but you. If you had listened to me back in may you would be much wealthier than you are after having bought that eight hundred dollar television Last stimulus check the day of the raid. So's like. I'm just going to keep this in my bank account. Unfortunately.

"Joining us. Now senator amy klobuchar from washington. She is the senior. Senator from minnesota and her new book is called antitrust taking on monopoly. Power from the gilded age to the digital age senator. Thanks for being here. Well thank you. It's just wonderful to be on. You have been doing a few things during the past few years been busy. Why at a book. And i might add. This is not a quickie book. This is not an election book. This is a very heavily reported historical book more than two hundred pages of notes. Why well because. I care that much about this. I started to think about doing this a few years ago and it really for me started with a call. I got way back in two thousand and eight when i got a call from a pharmacist. Actually at minneapolis children's hospital and he said that the cost of this life saving heart drug for heart defects had gone up astronomically from like eight hundred dollars a treatment to sixteen hundred dollars treatment and he didn't know why and so. This is a very typical. You get these constituent calls so our staff followed up ahead of minneapolis children's and lo and behold. It turned out that one company had bought that drug but then they had also cornered the market by buying the competitor drugs. And so what happened. Was that the ftc got involved after. I brought it up. It's like your classic new senator. And i bring it up. I have the little vial at a hearing. And i say why is this happening to the ftc and they start federal trade commission based start looking into it and ended up bringing a major suit and that was really exciting. Then which is typical of a lot of these cases. The courts threw it out. Basically and said oh it's the other similar and then it took years for a generic and another competitor to develop
"eight hundred dollar" Discussed on Parenting Roundabout
"Buy it for twenty dollars a month on your phone bill and you know if you don't need it that's fine. I personally use mine whole ton. And i need it now. My kids have it because my kids have iphones. I can trace their whereabouts. I can text message them. I can email them. I can send them things that they need to see. We get a lot of use out of that. I don't feel like that's indulgent. I feel like that's a useful tool but deciding. Say barak eight hundred dollar phone for his birthday. I i mentioned in these newspaper. People might say what did he do during net which what he did was you know worked in. Spent no money for a long time. And i kind of feel like he deserves something but you know right. They don't see that it's not like he's getting every time he asks for you. I said you have to wait until the contract on your last one expires when that happens then we can look into getting a new one and his battery was not had its its life had become diminished. And so it's a problem. When he goes to work for eight hours he needs to be able to call me at the end to pick them up. So there's all sorts of reasons for it so it's like individuals each family. It's individual to each child. You can't look at it and say well. This is the list of things that are cool. And this is the things those two things that you're going to ruin your child now right all night. There isn't such it's different for every kid. I certainly was judgy about when my kids were in against junior high. And somebody wanted to pretty much have a you know hole big fancy prom at a catering place with limos for middle schoolers and i was saying that seemed indulgent me. Make them wait for prom and there was concern expressed. That will some of the might not graduate high school in select. Well this is. What happens if you don't graduate high school. You forfeit the big fasting party so that but you know i suppose for other people that might be. Schools have been very hard and you want to reward all the hard work that might seem like a non indulgent thing. I don't know i hung. I beat my drum as i always do of. Every kid is different every family's different shut up unless it's me writing the article in which case in which case you should slowly every word. I think a quite at my parenting writing. I don't think he's been at generally maybe now and then i use maalot. Yeah the i am conscious of that. When i'm writing that sort of thing because you know it's certainly been my experience that whenever you deal in absolutes it doesn't work you do act. Your child will do by. Yeah the can we get our money back from this columnist if we do everything right in our child does not turn out to be an independent adult. Gillis your address will get in touch with you about right number of years breach contract but you know and then they do get independent and like nicole sunday. Move away tron. They take you off their phone. Who wants that you with indulgences in money that's kind of my husband's philosophy that we want them around so we have to appeal to their their senses as young adults and that usually means money does responsible opposing viewpoint. I think so. He's he's willing to do what it takes to keep them around and he honestly he has he makes no bones about it. He's like if we have to take out her meal every time or i don't know have something here that they need leave their. They're not a friend who has a son with some special needs and she is always said like if i can if i can buy him n. Experience or a friend or whatever on how do murray sweetie yeah actually to. If i can have a really cool birthday party so that people will go. He'll feel good that he's got friends on. That's how i'm gonna spend my money. I have been there. there's no valid. You can't place a value. On that stopover might like honestly that was a big you know. Remember when my son deluge and you know that was expensive and now disruptive and it took him out of school but it meant so much to him anyway it was so meaningful to him to feel special that way to feel incumbent invited you feel like he was good at that at a time when he wasn't feeling like he was good at you know off and i know about that. Probably unlooked indulgent right lake. Yeah saying the outside by no. That's you gotta do. Those things right now is yeah and it. is you know. And what constitutes to being deserving of something. You know you do things for them or give them things that they haven't earned will what i had behavior charts for my son a lot that we're just basically if he didn't do anything wrong he got a reward to do it's just a the avoided that the the the things that came naturally when were hard for him not to do that got rewarded. Although i imagine some but it's not something that's visible to the You know if they only see the time he slips in other times that yeah you know people are not going to necessarily understand that. So it's you know parents. You know your kids you know. I i see nothing wrong with occasional bribery and nurture wooden nurturing using nurturing in that way. I'm not sure i would use that term. Dirtying should be. How can you overt. I am unkind with the idea of over nurturing because nurturing seems like the baseline of parenting to me have all the other things to you and have the consequences and you have have all has to be against a background of rain. Doesn't it can you say. Can you say. I'm gonna withhold nurturing from you unless you do this you during this month son now i wanna. I wanna see some results. We'll the kind of like a little infants. You know. I mean they do say now. You can't spoil a baby like you can't. You can't spoil baby by responding to her when she's crying but that didn't use to be the it'd be like now you can only feed them every three hours because otherwise i don't know but you know when my first born was tiny baby nursing you. Now she'd cry. And i'd feeder my mom's like are you gonna feed that baby every time she crashed. Yeah that's good. Yeah you know unless unless you have a time machine how are you ever gonna know if things would have been different. If you've done things differently. This is the thing i always wonder about when when schools are different authors or whatever to doctors or whatever tried to lay down the law on stuff like that. It's you know if we could run an experiment and do it your way into it my way and then see what the best in. Go back again and do it that way. That's cool but we can't and who knows if the outcome would have been better by done it a different way. Not that. I don't torture myself over that constantly but i don't know i'm gonna are on the side of nurturing. Yeah pretty big believer..

And so a lot of time coaches will spend creating the goals around the beasts if you had an a on the left where you're at right now and then the be on the right side of the page where you want to be. They spent a lotta time with that.

And are you developing that little bit more of a logical decision making especially in terms of business so our emotions are up down in her. Confidence is all over the place in doubt and fear creep in where we with that again. Don't beat yourself up if you're like man. I'm just like unstable right now. I feel unstable. It's a big thing we do with clients. Why there's programs and coaches and mentors and and support that exists to help you through that so it's okay now when you have that so you've got the a. You're really clear where you're at you're really cleared where you wanna go. Which is be you take that as far as you want. We look at this and realize this isn't a plan yet. These are goals. And we know we're starting from this will be the framework to create a plan. This'll be like the dna so we can create a plan but they're not plans yet.

Not something i want. This is something that must happen. Eight must you have no idea how many times i was like Just always sort of goal. They're not even close to a goal of mine and then something clicked. So does it get upset. Such enough is enough. This is a must. If this doesn't happen this is what i'm gonna do. It's become a must next thing you know next month. It's like same resources available. I'm just both feeding. The goal is hit. And it's like okay. I could have done that like six months ago.

"You want the eight hundred dollar Access one that has the bluetooth dropper wireless. Yeah so i think you know definitely being able to add that I don't think it necessarily takes away from the pike Without having one it definitely does. It would definitely would add a lot of really good value to it The other thing. I would bring up the tires. Yeah tires. Yeah tires i come on a. They are solid Being very new to riding in snow they are very confidence inspiring grigsby very very grumpy. just being ride through so many different different areas and in knowing that okay like this is going to handle it yeah the downside to it and the reason. Why would replace them is that you're going to pay for it hard to push. Yeah you definitely need. you know. They don't roll and they're not going anywhere quick so yes on one hand they are. They are really nice. Know that you know if you are new that just be an old to to get through anything in how confidence that. Hey this is going to a big difference in the way of high crowds. You're not lying around all over the place with But yeah you're you're not going anywhere. Faustin yeah and we we but new on there after you after we took those tires off and you know what would you say. Was it a major improvement slight improvement night and day. Yeah i would definitely go in the night monday. I mean it. It really did kinda create a whole new bike. Cool you. It definitely rolled so much better. And you're at the v tires really did. Hold it back. i've always loved lou combination especially we have a ton of snow right now It just the benchmark for the nar narayan so ryan. We'll do you concurred with. Do you have anything different than you would improve on the bike. I would kind of go with dan on on the first thing i would probably change are the tires. Yeah just something with a more supple casing in more aggressive tread yeah Snowshoe excels are were decent tire But in deeper looser snow and even on hard pack you really notice the casing doesn't seem to flexes much. Yeah the rolling resistance. Could be the tread too because they are. They are a aggressive tire. There's more aggressive tires out now. We didn't let you ride with the bud it could still could happen Yeah so yeah i would. I would go to something a little. Faster rolling. Lighter weight. That would improve the ride. fantastically And then a drop. Her post is definitely nice. Bonus i've ridden a long time without one. I've only gotten into droppers in the last few years. So i you know that's a definite item. But it's not a deal breaker on the bike or something that needs to be urgently changed in my view Came with shimano brakes which worked great House riding in teens for an hour or two at a time had no issue with those Shimaa the schramm. Sx groups at zero kind of their entry level. Twelve speed Got it dialed in right away and didn't have any issues which shifting and slush snow or anything like that. It is a steel bodied cassette. So if you wanted to change some late and shave some wine you wanted to shave. Some weight You can go to a lighter cassette so otherwise Yeah it was a good good bike for the money. Thought and ready to upgrade to your favorite suspension fork And to do some fairly aggressive trail writing. I would think yeah. With the geometry it would make a great your own trail. Mike up in our parts you can go to the trail any time in the summer..

Seeking Refuge On The Open Road
"When we reached bob wells. He was camped out of the grid in his white. Gmc savannah van in the middle of the california desert. Some twenty five years into his experiment in mobile living. How did this whole journey start for you. What was your life like before you discovered this this lifestyle while i was either very very lucky or very unlucky depending on your point of view it was the winter of one thousand nine hundred five. Bob was living in anchorage alaska where he'd worked for over two decades in a union job at safeway saint job. His father had worked until his retirement. At the time bob was going through a divorce and after alimony and child support payments. He says he was no longer making enough to clear his rent. He was desperate and that is when he noticed old beat up box banned for sale on the side of the road for fifteen hundred dollars and he decided he had to go for it. That was all the money. I had left in the bank. But i had to have a place to live and so i bought it and That night through a backpacker. Sleeping bag. Down and i began my van dwelling adventure in the winter and the cold van and i That first night. I cried myself to sleep. I literally cried myself to sleep. Or when you're going through a divorce you you cry yourself to sleep on a pretty regular basis ends but sure just of course greatly compounded here. I was homeless bomb living in a van on the streets. And how much lower can my life get. But bob done a lot of camping in his life and you had to make a small space cozy and after a few weeks eat figured out how to cook and stay warm deal to bed and cabinets used his gym membership to shower. Figured out how to make it sustainable. And the money. He was saving on rent. Meant he didn't feel like he was always on the knife's edge it slowly and subtly shifted from. I despise my life to. This isn't really that bad to hey. Every month i keep the money and put it in my pocket to. I kind of really really liked this. And that's the way it's been every sense. Was it difficult at all to kind of switch. Grand narratives about What trajectory you're supposed to take as a productive member of the economy absolutely it was a traumatic transition you know. We are trained from birth to death. Our purpose in life is to be good productive citizens and so it made me question everything i had done. Exactly what society and told me to do. I'd gotten a job. I wanna house. We'd had kids. I was following the american dream to the best of my skill level and ability. As i could and then i was forced into living what society told me was the life of total failure homeless in the van and for the first time in my life i was happy well that raises a lot of existential questions and when i looked around at all the people i work with work eat sleep. Working sleep work. Eat sleep. I said what society told me it was not true. I've finally found a way. That's happy for me. Let me try to understand that. My life and for the life of others a few years later bob had saved up enough to quit his job at safeway and by supplementing his union pension with seasonal stints as a campground host. He was eventually able to take to the road as a full-time nomad in two thousand five about a decade. After he moved into the van. Bob decided to pay forward. Some of the techniques developed the started a website called cheap. Rv living the serve as a kind of resource for other people interested or in many cases forced to move into a vehicle. I started the sole intent of letting people know there wasn't on alternative. You didn't have to live under the tyranny of the marketplace and the way to do that was to eliminate your biggest cost in life. Which is your housing with cheaply. Live frugally and then you can live well for a long time the site just kinda mosey too long picking up you know few page views here and there in two thousand eight happened. Bob says in the wake of the financial crisis. He was inundated with desperate messages. Have lost my job. I we moved in with my family now. My family is lost their job. Now we're all losing our own. What are we going to do. And that was the question. I got over and over and over again. Even after the economic recovery started to pick up the number of inquiries and page views and people in the community continued to grow. Fueled partly by the rise of social media. Bob started his cheap. Rv living youtube channel in two thousand sixteen and has since become just one of many popular nomad influencers but unlike a lot of the glossier more glamorous content associated with the hashtag van live crowd. Bob's videos are all about helping people struggling to keep their head above water financially and they're filled with the nitty gritty details of living behind the wheel. Today we're gonna talk about heat today. We're gonna talk about taking showers. The topic of today is poop. You can cut your behinds. Not one of them. You want that thing to be clean all the time. Bob also does these little interview profiles of people living in different kinds of vehicles cars to trucks to buses. Welcome back fellow nomads. Today we're going. Meet a new friend of mine. Joe sale load everyone relax. They're really out. There doesn't look like there's a bunch of people out there. Yeah thank you that video for the record. Two point five million views and counting. Bob says his videos have become so popular that he's now making more money than ever before. I think eventually the second break but it gets great reviews on amazon which is why i'm recommending ads in affiliate marketing. Help him bring in over one hundred fifty thousand dollars a year. Bob makes enough to have two full time assistants helping him with his work and because he says he never plans to live in a house again. He makes a very healthy profit. I'm make much more money than i ever thought. I could possibly make in my life. And i live in a van. My expenses are pretty darn low with that extra money. Bob started a nonprofit homes on wheels alliance to support people transitioning into living in their vehicles. They've started to outfit and give vance to people in dire need of a new vehicle. And bob says he saving up to buy a plot of land for an in person resource center. It isn't clear how many people are living on the road at this point. But in two thousand ten when bob started this annual gathering van and car dwellers in the arizona desert called rubber tramp rendezvous it had a few dozen attendees by two thousand and nineteen. They had an estimated ten thousand people show up and as a central node in this growing community. Bob has had a kind of front row seat to the massive disruptions of the past decade. And he's watched as certain demographics have borne the brunt of those changes. It's a surprisingly large female. Contingent older women in their sixties and seventies. When they were girls they were told get married. Stay home raise a family and so they never go up so sturdy and then now they're living on five hundred to eight hundred dollars a month so skirt and he cannot live in this country on five hundred two thousand a month so sturdy and live in house and you just can't do it and so they all desperately needed the solution as well and i told them all. If you move into your plan you can live reasonably well on that. You won't be rich but you won't eating dog food and there's hope bob says he has seen an uptick in views and inquiries about van dwelling over the last year. But so far he says the stimulus checks and the nationwide moratorium on evictions have slowed. The number of new nomads. Still he says as the baby boomers continue to age into social security and as the effects of climate change intensify bob expects the movement towards van life to surge and he sees it is his mission to try to help however he can. I've got a string of lifeboats. And i want to get as many as i can into the lifeboat and i think the hammer blow of two thousand eight really put a crack in people's confidence and i think when you combine that with this cheers a natural disasters and the epidemic. I think people are just going to be abandoning the american dream in droves. That's all i'm trying to do is get people out

A new way to invest that doesn't involve buying stocks hyped on Reddit
"So lately. All the buzz his been about well. Bitcoin and other crypto currencies. Bitcoin recently fifty thousand dollars a bitcoin and people who've been buying the stocks that are being touted on read it and it was all that mess that went on with Game stop and other stocks. That went up like rockets and then like rockets can do crash back down to earth and my son is in this investing group at school. He's fifteen and they're investing not real money but they all have their stock portfolios and wanna read you to texts from him from this morning. They're really funny. Is said in the last nineteen minutes. My stock portfolio dropped by six sixty. Then he texts me eight minutes later and these eh. then it went up by eight hundred dollars. And i the other night. When he was trapped. In the car with me i started boring. I'm trying to talk about how my philosophies investing work very differently than matt worrying about day trading and options and all. That was going to happen up to the minute and if you thought a father could be more irrelevant to sun then i was that minute you you couldn't be no interest in anything i was saying because to him. This is sport and that's what investing has been of late call. Investing is really speculating. And that's not my thing. I mean i'm the dulles person alive and i invest in a dull way because the ideas i wanna make money over time and so. That's why i get excited about really accessible. Investing opportunities for small investors did allow you to build reasonable wealth over time instead of trying to get the quick score and my son's a sharp kid hill. Eventually get it and will not that. It matters what you're buying and selling minute by minute. And by the way he's asked me if he can have a real investing account. Will you know you'd have to have what's called a custodial said yeah yeah where where you were the pretend owner but i'm the one doing the investing and i don't know what to do you know. Give them a couple of hundred dollars and let him play. And maybe learn the value of term investing. But you know it fifteen. What is long term. That's like three days from now. It's hard to explain a concept where you build wealth over time well do you know goldman sachs is goldman sachs is for rich people like crista. People was massive amounts of money. Who work with a personal financial manager. Who handles their money for them. That's right krista. That's what you do with your millions. Yeah no no okay. So there are. There are very wealthy people. That's what they do and goldman sachs has been doing some stuff lately that doesn't fit at all their historical pedigree They're the ones that issue the apple card for people that have the apple credit card and they have Savings accounts and all that kind of thing with no minimums will now. They've launched some cold. Marcus invest which allows people to use goldman sachs incredible financial analysis investment analysis till build robo investing portfolios for you using very low cost funds. And this is something you would ask somebody. Ten years ago if goldman sachs would ever being looking to provide investments an investment advice to everyday ordinary. People they'd say you're crazy. That will never happen. Well they're not doing what fidelity investments does where a dollar is enough to open an account many cases schwab one hundred dollars. They're doing what vanguard. Does you have to have a thousand bucks to open an account but once you have that thousand you can get advice that is tailored to your personal financial goals and outlook. The money can be and a retirement account or an investment account use what are known is exchange traded funds. Etf's and typically for the advice and the investments you pay roughly a third of a percent per year for them to handle your money. So i guess ten thousand dollars be thirty five bucks a year. Is that right. I think that's about right. three dollars. Fifty cents on a thousand. I think that's right so this is an opportunity for you to do. Investing through the nation's big boys big money houses and their whole business plan is pretty similar to what you'd have if you were with Betterment or wealth front that really started this whole investing idea. And i'm sure neither of them are very happy the goldman sachs through. Marcus invest is playing in their ballpark.

Huawei unveils flagship foldable smartphone for China market
"Have another foldable phone. This one from wall way. Sarah tells all about it all right away. The made x. two which now holds the screen inside like the samsung galaxy. Fold rather than wrapping around the outside when you close it while we added a second six point. Four or five inch led ninety. Heard screen to the made to for you to use. It is folded. The inside foldable screen is eight inches. Twenty four by twenty display and the company says the mate x has less of an internal gap so it folds flatter than the galaxy full. So they're obviously making comparisons there. The screen folds into a waterdrop shape at the hinge when closed to prevent chrissy and and also breaking the made two launches but the android ten based. Em ui eleven. No google services but while we says it will be. One of the first device is upgraded to harmony os. That's always us in april. The made extra comes to china on february twenty fifth for seventy thousand nine hundred ninety nine one which is about two thousand seven hundred eighty five. Us dollars the announcement was conducted in mandarin nod. In english as is as it was in previous announcements and facts while we may run out of parts in q to even one if us trade restrictions do remain in place. Nick asia reported last week. That always told suppliers smartphone component orders would-be sixty percent lower than last year. Yes on the one hand we we see wah wah moving over to samsung's form factor On the other hand they are touting unimproved hinge that they say well. We've moved there because we've made it better but outside this is obviously targeted only domestically in china and We it's a question of even how many they could make to sell in china. Trevor have you been paying attention to this. Yeah i mean. I think if you're running out of chips the navy a good strategy would be to put out a phone. That's this expensive. You know you're not gonna sell now. Granted they they've probably been working on this for years but like that's going to help like how many people are going to spend twenty eight hundred dollars on a folding fund but it puts wall in a position where they're innovating on this new form factor. And personally. I think that the the full actually works really well. Because you don't have that sort of lopsided gap that you do in other foldables while way is playing out the clock here. They're they're hoping they can find a way out of this and they just wanna keep making models. They sold off on her but they do not want to sell off while way itself which would be the only other way out of this but if the. Us doesn't budge. Which doesn't look like it's going to. I'm not sure how long they can go. Obviously not longer than q two if things stay exactly the way they are now. Well the the foldable itself looks pretty nice guy. I didn't watch the entire announcement again in mandarin but the subtitles. I can follow along pretty well but it does look at least you know when someone standing on stage telling you about specs. It looks to be very nice When it's you know when it's when it's being used in tablet form You got a nice little eight inch screen when you've when it's when it's folded but you can still use it as a phone kind of block easy but i think for anyone who's like yeah but i have multiple devices and one that makes sense. It does seem pretty sturdy. One thing i did like about it was that they said that it was waited on one side and it reminded me a lot of the e-readers in adel put more weight on. What side because it's a more natural way to hold the device when you're holding it open so i think that's something that hopefully other foldables will adopt. Because they're sort even because they're trying to distribute the parts evenly across the

Bitcoin hits new record of $50,000
"Bitcoin crashed through fifty thousand dollars in the middle of the night. That's back down to forty eight or forty nine today but it for record high fifty thousand dollars so thanks government. I saw that. I expect their their contributions to bitcoin to continue helping me. Yes what did they do to bitcoin. Well they printed a bunch of money and made bitcoin a healthy alternative. That's constantly gaining value versus the us d- which is constantly losing value because they just keep printing more and more of it yet the more they crank up the printing presses for For the us dollar and other currencies around the world and they're all printing and they're all giving it a you know giving away to their buddies. That's just the way that that system works Bitcoin is completely independent from cryptocurrency. In general is independent from those money. Printers they don't have any control over it so they have no idea what the price of bitcoin is going to do. In relation to it like how far up it will go and they cannot stop it. That's an interesting way of looking at it. you know is value. Bitcoin actually up right now or is the value of us. T just that much down right now. I suspect it's a combination of the two. I because the other cryptos aren't rising at the same clip as bitcoin so bitcoin is much higher valued. I would say then. Probably the dollar is losing value. But that's a good thing for everybody holding bitcoin. Bitcoin cash got up to almost eight hundred dollars. If i remember correctly got up over seven hundred at the least yeah a lot of the alz. Is they call them. Have been having a pretty nice week
Third stimulus check: Biden backs full $1,400 payment if you make up to $75,000
"While the senate is mostly focused on the impeachment trial this week. Lawmakers over in the house are putting their energy into the next covid nineteen relief bill and yes. It's looking likely. Americans will get a third round of direct payments. The latest proposal from democrats calls for fourteen hundred dollars to go to people who make up to seventy five thousand dollars a year and couples. Who make up to one hundred and fifty thousand a year would get twenty eight hundred dollars now. This could be based on your twenty twenty tax return unless of course you have not filed yet. Then it will go by twenty nine thousand nine taxes. President biden has now endorsed this plan. He democrats say the american people cannot wait any longer for the economic help needed now but some republicans say the democrats are not working to compromise. Many moderate republicans and democrats want fewer people to qualify for direct payments. This time around voicing concerns about the national debt and they've said in the past they've worried the relief package will be too big either way. This latest proposal still has a long way to go. Lawmakers still need to draft a complete bill to include a lot of other pandemic era priorities like a funding boost for schools extra unemployment benefits and more money to help with vaccine efforts. Then the senate and house both need to sign off before it will go to the president to sign into law. The goal is to have everything done by the middle of next month. So we'll see
Which One Would You Choose?
"To where you oh no one money and it can start out by you know paying off your credit card debt. Pay off your personal loans paying off your student loans and last but not least pay off the mortgage. Start enjoying your paycheck. I'm not talking about leaving a couple hundred bucks or thousand dollars leftover at the end of the month. I'm talking about really enjoying your own paycheck on a monthly basis. To where you don't have to worry about money being in the bank and last what about having money in savings and i'm not talking about two hundred and fifty dollars or four hundred bucks. I'm talking about a thousand dollars and then building up that that savings account to be six months worth of living expenses. Now if you had that. And god forbid envision this piece in this. I don't like to go down the dark path but twenty twenty taught us a lot about you know ourselves in what's going on. Let's say you're going along. Happy joy everything is great and unfortunately you lose your job and you're out looking for a job and you just can't find one. You still have to pay your bills. But you don't have very much in savings and what you get an unemployment six hundred dollars a week. Eight hundred dollars a week somewhere around. There doesn't cut it. So what do you do. You keep looking for a job. You keep going through the process but at the end of the day. You still have bills to be paid. You call your creditors in your creditors are willing to give you a forbearance or deferment. But that doesn't help you because there's one thing that's happening interest is still crewing on your accounts so you don't have a payment do but next month your payments can be larger. Because you still have a balance. That's do that balances accruing interest in your probably charging on it or using the account. And then guess what happens. You have a larger payment the next month. So how you gonna for the larger payment if you couldn't afford the smaller one and then unfortunately some of these bills will go into collections in in go further down the road and i don't wanna go there. Here's what i really wanna paint you guys this way you're going along you have your dream job and you're making good money and you don't owe anybody a nickel a- dime you are financially and debt free to where you're putting away twenty percent of your paycheck on a monthly basis. You have that rainy day fund. That's put in place. God forbid something happens and you're not living paycheck to paycheck. And guess what you have. You have another savings account for your fund days to where you can take the family on vacations cruises Wherever you want to go and you don't owe anybody a single thing through this whole process. Now stop in. Imagine how that would feel to where you could not. Oh anybody a single dime or a nickel. How does that make you feel makes me feel. It makes me feel great. I it makes me feel like i'm alive.

Should You Rent Live Streaming Gear?
"On this episode. You will learn why you should consider renting livestreaming gear before you make that final purchase decision. So gem let's talk about renting livestreaming gear. Yeah i think a lot of times. We make the assumption that we have to buy this stuff. But if you're in business especially if you're a business owner you're in the business of live streaming. You actually have some options that the the hobbyist may be necessarily doesn't and that is you can lease equipment. You can rent equipment for a short period of time. I mean i have a friend that runs a video production company. He doesn't own any of his cameras. He goes and rents them whenever he gets a job for a client. Because one thing that happens with gear is this stuff gets upgraded all the time and so sometimes trying to keep up with the latest and the greatest goes into one of your favorite phrases. Yes and it's a gas gear acquisition syndrome and basically. It's the fact that you know when we buy a piece of equipment we then wanna keep buying because we see what other people have or what kind of they're using for their live streaming setup. Now to your point jim. I mean when you buy equipment you know. It's it's an asset appreciable asset. So it's like buying a car. For example you buy it and then it's gonna depreciate over time so for example if you bought that thousand dollar camera over time you know it's going to pretty much worthless it's going to be you've got time working against it and you also have the technology as well because technology changes extremely rapidly. You know it changes so quickly that that you know to the point where you buy something in like maybe in a month it's outdated because every about every year there's always something new coming out so this might be. You know a good reason why you should rent livestreaming gear so jim. Let's talk about just the various parts about renting equipment. I mean as you know. Yes people can go out and they can you know if they have. I think keating is like let's start with budget. I mean we rent. Why should somebody rent gear. I mean they definitely show up budget right. That's part of it absolutely. And i think and so. That's where renting right gives you that ability to you know it's like it's like a car taking a test drive you can try before you buy. I mean We're going to share some links a little bit later. Some of these places. You could rent Stuff for as little as three days. So you know be focused that you're going to actually you know you know 'cause how many times do we buy a new piece of equipment and then it sits there for a little bit before we start using it and so this kind of makes you think. Hey i if i if i'm serious about using this piece a year i'm actually going to you know. Take it out use it. Make sure it's it's doing what i think it can do or wanted to do. And so sometimes you're gonna find out that that's not what it is advertised that it would do isn't always what ends up being the case and it doesn't do what you were hoping for a one great example of this you know their cameras so when you're running a livestream you may want to use. Will you want to have a camera and a lot of people to start with the first option the webcam sorry the the built in webcam. And then when they're ready they're like hey i want another will just having. The webcam is not the only piece of equipment you need when you have for example if you're using a built in webcam you need a webcam you need lighting for example to then make that webcam look good and you know those webcams they can only do. So much so might be choppy because it's basically contingent on your computer so for example. If that's not good enough in your okay. I won't improve that. Well then i'm going to go to a webcam and actual external webcam extra webcams limitations. And then you go up another notch. If you're like hey want to. I want to be able to switch different things for example different cameras or i want to have different angles will a webcam can only do so much. Then you need to move into. Dsl are mirrorless camera and those then for example require more equipment to actually run the equipment. So it's it's a slippery slope once you start using different types of equipment. They're always going to be additional costs for example if you buy diesel our camera. Hey it's oh. I can just go buy one off the shelf. But here's the thing. It's not just about buying off the shelf. You then have to buy the right lens. Some of them include lenses which is great. But hey then we'll hey. How do i put this into my computer and that gets us into unietd capture card so as you can see it can quickly spiral out of control and so this is a really really really good reason why people need to consider renting livestreaming gear There's so much out there. And depending on what. Your setup is what your budget is you can easily go and drop immune if you wanted to buy just a basic camera. Six hundred dollars a camera. Two hundred dollars on a capture card to be able to plug the camera into your computer. So we're eight hundred dollars. Roughly right there Let's see what else you need. They need probably an audio interface or microphone. Sorry audio interface or mixer. So that's what one hundred one hundred fifty dollars till like five or six hundred dollars. That's really more bare minimum. So i think we're what that's probably around fifteen hundred sixteen hundred dollars right there and then. Hey i want improve my audio. I can go by mike for one hundred dollars but you know again then. I have to have a by the mike. Well then i have to have the armed. Attach it while the arm is another hundred. So you know you're at what That's that's over two thousand dollars right there. And that doesn't include the software so easily you've reached twenty five hundred three thousand dollars so some of the benefits obviously like to renting this gears. That will if you don't have the cash then. Maybe you rent a piece of equipment that you need. You know that you need and use it temporarily and you use it to film all of your videos at once and then you return the equipment versus. I dropped three thousand dollars. And then i have to actually spend the time learning it in also making sure that it works how i needed to work. You know. there's a whole process at it right job. Oh absolutely and then the other thing you may start to find an and it was funny. I was A guy guys said this the other day it's like if you have one dollar lighting and thousand dollar camera you've basic aren't going to have a one dollar camera because you didn't take into consideration the other stuff that you need to make that camera work right. You know. I mean sometimes like we have people that wanna have green screens. And they don't have the lighting and so they're backdrop actually looks worse than if they just had a plane wall behind them. And so you know reading this stuff can really give you a feel for like. Is this really. What's going to move the needle for me. I mean you know. We've always talked about getting better one percent of the time so this is a big deal when you kind of as you're when you when you've got gas you really gotta sometimes take a step back and really say. Is this really going to help my business. What's the plan behind it. And so you know and and and you may find that your space that you're live streaming from isn't really a set up in a way to properly use that gear right if you've got you know like i'm bringing in a second camera but now when you look at the lighting it's like oh my backdrop looks horrible. My walls not you know so maybe you want to improve the status of your studio before you go one by year but then even renting the gear will let you say oh. This isn't going to work quite like. I thought you know. Cut your. it really is a way to kind of. Cut your losses temporarily until you're ready to take that next step and there are a couple of different approaches. You can take this as i mentioned earlier. If you're you know if you're a type a person you're a planner and you've got everything ready like you know for example what your videos are going to film are and you've got them scripted out. It would make sense if you don't have all the equipment go and go to a rental place and we'll share some of those here and few minutes but go to a place that you can rent equipment from and tell them. Hey you know what this is. What i'm looking to do for the most part. They're going to know their stuff inside now and they're going to be able to also sort of give you a bit of a consultation they're gonna be able to recommend what might pair well

"eight hundred dollar" Discussed on Daily Tech News Show
"Used to store them. The ledgers run by era a texas based company owned in part by ibm alphabet everywhere which operates monitoring for any for the nhs says the system makes sure that data can be recorded in real time and is not changed or tamper with by mistake or design everything. The ledger does could be done by hand but it would be slower and more prone to mistakes. Yeah so the idea here is is. The ledger is encrypted. So it's a little more secure The way these these blockchain ledgers work. Once you put something on there. You can't really remove it. It's a it's a permanent record and and so the idea is you can scan in stuff to say vaccine arrived and i put it in now. Somebody could do that wrong. But if you're doing paper records that could do that wrong too and the advantage here is instead of a paper record. That took a little longer. Because he didn't scan it in. This is a little more foolproof. And when you go to consult it you don't have to go look up a paper record. You've got the blockchain that gives you instant access to the entire history. It's even better than doing. Say a spreadsheet or a database where a little slower to look up and maybe the relationships to things aren't as natural as they are in a blockchain. So i i've been waiting for some really good examples of this being used outside of fintech and this is one of the best i've seen this is a this is a dream for accountants inside of procurement companies or in space. Because when you think about like this vaccine it's not just the the hospital is using it. It's gotta go from the you know the company that made it. Then it's got to go to someone like ups or or you know someone to transport it has got gotta get on a plane and has got to get back in a truck. Then it's gotta get into the hospital and then it's got gotta get to nurses and doctors or put in people's arms and blockchain can just keeping track of all of that so much easier than all of the decentralized systems that People would have to normally do this by paper. Yeah that's part of too is that this is now one. Even though it's blockchain is also always thought of decentralized. This one ledger right. You don't have. The shipping company has a ledger that they keep in their database that separate from the ledger. That's kept by the hospital which is kept separate like era. just scans. it goes right on the ledger. and then it's there it's permanent right. It's not like oh. The database got corrupted. I mean i guess anything could get corrupted but It's just a lot simpler right absolutely. And like i said accounting people are gonna probably love this and i think you just want to see more and more companies are going to start moving to this technology in future.

Qualcomms New Snapdragon 870
"Coming soon to millions of odroid phones qualcomm has unveiled. Its new snapdragon. Eight seventy chip which has a similar design to the eight sixty five and eight sixty five plus but is clocked at three point. Two gigahertz making it about ten percent faster than the eight sixty five. Quoting the verge. Think of it almost like a snapdragon. Eight sixty five plus plus qualcomm says that the reason for the new chip is in response to manufacture market demands. The eight seventy is designed for companies that want to offer a top tier processor. But don't need the absolute best features the flagship snapdragon eight eight offers and the higher price tag that it demands instead. The company says that it expects that snapdragon eight seventy pounds should hit a sub eight hundred dollar price tag. Although confusingly we've already seen snapdragon eight eight eight phones like the seven hundred and ninety nine dollar galaxy s twenty one. Start to bleed into that range presumably. There's also a marketing aspect here. The snapdragon eight seven new branding and modest if still real speed improvements over the snapdragon eight sixty five plus mean that companies using the chip in their phones. Get a new twenty twenty one chip to boast about on spec sheets without concerns of getting looked over by customers for having an outdated or old processor eight sixty five or eight sixty five plus and quote
Samsung Galaxy S21 vs. iPhone 12
"Galaxy. S twenty one. Yes twenty one. Plus any s twenty-one ultra starting at eight hundred dollars for the standard model with the s twenty one plus costing about a thousand dollars and then the s twenty one ultra costing about twelve hundred dollars for years now. Samsung has positioned itself as one of the top. If not the top smartphone available on google's android platform as a result it is often considered the primary rival to apple in its iphone. So here's the question. How does the new line of samsung galaxy devices compared to the iphone. Twelve the latest model of apple's popular smartphone. That's we'll break down today. Let's start with the twenty one versus the iphone twelve the standard models. They're very similar. Screen sizes the same overall size. Weight of the phone is the same. Here's where they kinda stick out a little bit. The twenty one offers more storage at starting line so you get one hundred twenty eight gig versus sixty four gig at the start for an iphone twelve. The other thing is interesting to the twenty. One offers three cameras on the back of the phone basically meaning telephoto lens which is typically included on models of the iphone. Twelve pro are available here The iphone twelve has just two lenses on the back of its phone. So you're looking at four cameras. Total one front three in the back on s twenty one for his three total cameras one front two in the back for the iphone twelve also pricing pretty much. Exactly the same. So essentially within twenty. One you're getting an extra camera and more sword right out of the gate. The s twenty one plus versus the iphone pro with the iphone twelve pro again. You get a third camera on the back but telephoto lens. But what's interesting is the twenty one plus gives you a larger screen so instead of the six point one inch screen that you would have on the iphone twelve pro you end up with a six point seven inch screen on the twenty one plus so that's interesting to And again both. Those phones are pretty much on par price-wise prices the same. The size of the phone is really the difference here in terms of the screen. The starting storage is the same one hundred. Twenty eight gig but really. It's about that screen size. You get a lot more screen for your buck with that samsung phone now. Let's get to the granddaddies here. The ultra for the pro. Max with the ultra. You get six point eight inch screen so really not that big a leap compared to the plus the iphone twelve pro. Max is where you see a bigger leap and screen size from the pro. Six point seven inches When you're looking at the key features the pro. Max camera system has some smaller upgrades to get better. Zoom for example. I'm higher aperture as well. The twenty one. Ultra has an astonishing cameras on the back of the phone. So you get a second telephoto lens. That's interesting to price price-wise also it's about one hundred dollars more for the s twenty ultra versus the iphone. Twelve pro max. Here's another wrinkle to this though you have a fourth iphone. Twelve model the iphone twelve mini which is essentially the iphone twelve. Just in a much smaller size. In fact i just upgraded to an iphone twelve mini coming from an iphone seven and it's actually smaller than the iphone seven but it has a bigger screen and it's a nice phone and i think for folks that maybe are just tired of the bigger smartphone screens. It's a good alternative
How to Money
Can You Pay Your Mortgage with a Credit Card?
"Yeah so. Let's talk about matt how you could potentially use a credit card in order to pay for your mortgage like jen said. It's pretty hard to come by. We'll do our best to give you just a couple of that. You could potentially consider and interestingly enough you're more likely to find an apartment complex or landlord who's willing to accept credit cards for rent payment. Then you are to find a bank willing to accept a credit card for a mortgage payment for instance if your landlord uses a service like cosy. You can choose to pay via credit card. Although at the same time you're gonna pay a fee in order to do that and even the mortgage servicers that do accept them on the fee that they pay to oftentimes plus extra at the time of the payment so i do have one mortgage company that will accept credit cards. Nice but i. I can't i forget if it's two and a half percent or three percent need to go back and look so it just never make sense. It just negates the bonus from the car exactly right so and then another potential option is you could use the checks. Your credit card company sends you aka the convenience checks if they certainly will want you to start using convenience. Checks is what they call them really what they heart like cash advance checks and they're just not good for you because of the fees that are charged for using those checks they sent out to you and it's typically somewhere between three and five percent so again with those as well. It just doesn't make sense to use them in order to pay your mortgage and that's because the rewards that you're getting from doing so are typically capped at two percent. It just doesn't make sense to pay four percent to get two percent. Yeah sure unless. Amex starts categorizing mortgage payments as groceries right. Exactly six percent two percent spread but jin a roundabout way that we've heard of before is to use your credit card to purchase a money order deposit that money order with your bank and then pay your mortgage with the account that you deposited the money order into however the the problem there is. There's only a couple of money order. Companies who accept credit cards just Western union seven but even then another hurdle or the big fees charged by the credit card company. By the way. I like to get my money. Orders when i get my slurpee at seven and that's perfect combo. I don't think there are seven. Elevens around us are there like i don't see them anywhere near atlantic. Maybe in the burbs. We don't like near where we live. Yeah yeah but the the problem here though is A money order jen. You're gonna touch on this. It's a type of guaranteed payment right and so much credit card. Companies are going to treat that expense as a cash advance. And so because of that you'll be charged for it again in the in the three to five percent range so again this is another instance where the benefits you would receive would be outweighed by the fees that they're going to charge plus in this case. There's a lot of hassles. Well we're gonna keep coming up with option. Here's one more. Plastic is another Website that you could turn to. It's the one option that we know that allows you to pay a bill like a mortgage with your credit card and it's worth looking into matt. You've used this before when they had promotional offense but they don't have a professional offering the rate that they charge us two point eight five percent and so again the only time that it would make sense to use plastic to pay mortgage is potentially in the case that you need to hit a credit card sign up bonus in order to score what like six seven eight hundred dollars from the initial spin that you gotta meet with credit card if you're having trouble meaning it through other things that won't Charge you a fee that it might make sense to pay your mortgage with that credit card through a website like plastic at least just at once in order to make sure that you get that sweet bonus and basically the way plastic forks. Is that when you pay via their website. They then cut a check to the mortgage company. Nashville paper check. So that's how that's how it works. It's certainly an interesting service. And when they do have promo lineups matt. Didn't you at some point. Five grand and free money. Think so and so. This was a couple of years ago. I think when they first launched But basically they were giving away fee free dollars and so you had to spend limit in. Hey up to five thousand dollars. We'll cut those checks for you free of charge. And so i was able to like you said literally. I was able to hit a spend limit for a new credit card. Sign up bonus That i may not have otherwise hit but to be honest. I have not seen any other sort of promotions like that. Since then you are able to get fee free dollars by referring friends and so every time you refer somebody they use their service. You will then receive some feverish dollars but again. This isn't something. That is really sustainable. it can be something that maybe do once saying here to hit a spend limit but otherwise. It's not something that you can kinda regularly go to and so jen for you. It's probably just stick with those automatic. Ach payments and then. Just keep an eye out for you. Know maybe codes that plastic does put out there to kind of maybe less than that fee for at least a month or two of payments ultimately trying to get your mortgage on a credit card. It's just a lot of hassle and even if you were able to get to work out you likely won't be earning enough in cashback to to actually make it. Worthwhile might be more of a key hot pursuit or audit quixotic. Okay all right so yeah. It might be one of those things where you're tilting at windmills. You're pursuing an opportunity to try to earn greater cashback when you're paying your mortgage but ultimately there's just not a cut route that exists in order to help you do that. And score those cashback rewards every month without paying fees that outweigh the potential opportunity.
Looking for a phone for the holidays? Here are your best bets
"You're looking for a smartphone for yourself or a loved one this holiday. The choices can get overwhelming. Fortunately we've got some answers. Roger chang and this is your daily charge with me phone expert than law created holiday gift guide funds. Welcome lynn hierachy. I'm happy to be here. So you've a rundown of the best smartphone options out there but before we get into specific suggestions. Any general advice on what we should think about when we're syrian new phone. Yeah every time you know before you buy. New phone is important to think about how you use your last phone. Did you play a lot of games and watch videos if so you probably want a phone with a big screen and a battery a big battery and or did you take a lot of photos and capture a lot of videos than you probably want something with a great camera so you really want to think about how you use your phone and make sure that the phone works for you and your needs instead of just getting the latest greatest. You don't wanna pay for features you don't need features that you may or may not need i talk about five g a lot on this show But senior the expert. I wanted to get your read on this law. Is it something you really need. When considering which funded by there is a premium for five devices. So is it really worth. It is rolling out in more areas throughout this year. But i know like some carriers. I believe t mobile. They offer five g coverage under its unlimited plan anyway. So it's understandable if you're eyeing a five g device and that's your next phone in that situation but i'm not a hundred percent convinced a five g iphone is something you absolutely need this year especially when so many people are working from home anyway and especially if you don't have good five three coverage in your area so you should definitely check that before you make a decision and you know coverage maps from carriers. They don't really tell the whole story so you you wanna make sure you do a lot of research and phones. Five g. phones are getting cheaper and cheaper. So i may hold out just a bit longer gutted. It feels like the most part people are committed to the platforms. They've chosen if you're an iphone user. You're likely buying a new iphone. Twelve financial user. You have more choices. But a- likely to stick with another android phone other instances where you would consider switching. Generally that is true It people do tend to kind of stick with the same ecosystems. But i think it's easier to switch platforms easier more now than now more than ever especially compared to years past I think about some certain situations that would motivate motivate someone switch and i think peripheral accessories are especially good reason of the airpods pro. They do work with android phones to an extent but their functionality and their features work so much better with an iphone and you basically kind of even iphone to use an apple watch for its to its full potential so i could see android user. Who is really attracted to those accessories switch for that. I think for an iphone to android people do want the customization. I know iowa's fourteen gives you more and options but it just doesn't compare to what you can play around with on an android phone. It's a lot more fun if you have the time for it. So let's get into it. Let's talk about specific phones. What are some of your top picks for this holiday season again. It really depends on who you are and what your needs are but for an iphone. I do like the iphone mini because of its size. I have small hands. So it's very attracted to me and like the iphone se because it's a because of its low price and for android phones. The galaxy s twenty f e is really affordable. Pick for the galaxy line. And i liked the oneplus eight because it's premium but it's competitively priced so let's dig into some of those phones the the galaxy s twenty f e which. I know we made fun of alive for the name. Initially fan edition actually ended up being pretty decent About what you get with it and why you know. That's that's a pretty decent deal. Among other phones out there. Well one is that it has five g and it has a great performance. And the although you know. The camera isn't as good as the s. twenty. Ultra the note. Twenty ultra It's a good price. I think it starts about seven hundred dollars and it's so much cheaper than some of the premium galaxy phones out there so it's something if you want that galaxy samsung the samsung galaxy experience. But you don't want to spend way too much. I think that is a good alternative. Also you can look into samsung's galaxy a series lineup phones. Like the eighth fifty one i think is one of the more recent ones those also kind of offer that that software experience a galaxy experience without a premium of a high price so beyond some of these head like his. You know you talked about samsung. Which is a well-known Are there any other handsome. Makers that are a bit more under the radar that offer phones. Maybe deserve a second. Look yeah. I don't. I don't have any official releases or deals specifically that i can say i always think. Motorola is such a great company for mid range affordable phones and throughout the holiday season. There moto phones do get a discounted and there are some carrier promotions to it. I would say keep an eye on those things especially if you don't want to spend a thousand dollars on a phone if you're looking for something it starts like two hundred dollars. An up. motorola makes a really solid aggressively priced phones. That if you don't really need all the premium features so if you just kind of use your phone to make calls the moti. Seven power is a good mid range phone with a big battery so you don't have to charge it and that would be a great pick for someone who's a little bit more straightforward with their needs at. Don't need a lot or grammy. It's black friday today. So i'm sure there are plenty of deals to go around beyond the motorola brand new. You mentioned one plus and that's another company. That is a little bit under the radar. It's not a household name tug a little bit about that in some of the options there. Yeah we're plus is definitely. They started out as an android enthusiasts brand. They've branched out in there a little bit more popular. Now you're right. They're not as popular will known as google and samsung. Their current flagship line is the eight. It's oneplus eight pro. Act it's a lot of phones year. They released like four And so that's kind of their higher end line. They just released their oneplus. Nord en ten. Five g That will be available in north america at a later date and that has five g And it's about. I think it's going to be about four hundred dollars. Give or take so that is something that you know. They've consistently released premium phones with great hardware at affordable pricing used to be more affordable from years past. Not so much anymore but it still. You know hundreds of dollars cheaper than samsung galaxy funds beyond one plus and samsung another company that surprisingly flies under the radar is google right. It's it's a big name company but the pixel phones. Have not exactly been blockbuster devices. I believe one of the pixel phone is on your list. You talk about which phone that google makes people should be looking at. Yeah so. I think you're talking about pick so four eight five g. I've consistently recommended that phone since its release i like it. Because it is more affordable than the five the pixel five which is its main flagship. But you get a lot of the same features it still has. It has the same camera as a five. So it has great. Low like Low light photos and it has a soffer support from google. And it's also has five g which is what differentiates it from the pig soul for a that was Also released so that would be all the pixel phones that were released this year. I do like the four eighty five g the most just because it's cheaper than the five but has many of the same features so most of those flagship phones we're talking about the pixel five twelve. They're they're eight hundred dollars closer to one thousand dollars. If you're looking to spend that much like you. Does anyone actually need to spend a thousand dollars on a new phone. I mean you can definitely spend that much if you want you know phones. That cost that much are usually faster. They have longer less batteries and have great cameras. But i feel like this year compared to last compared to yours past. We've seen so many great phones that are priced below thousand dollars. You could find something great for four hundred dollars to six hundred dollars. I do think. Fund companies were reactive to the spending behavior of twenty twenty and how people for being a little bit more cost conscious and they and they Reacted to that. With a appropriately priced phones. That have been way more aggressive but still have premium teachers. And what if you're shopping for kids or parents amid this may be the same line of conversation. But you know for for folks who don't necessarily need all those layers in bells and whistles of. Are there any other phones that you suggest for them. That may be even a step down from some of the ones you talked about earlier definitely as it again. A motorola makes a lot of inexpensive phone so i would look towards their e line of funds the moto e six i believe is you know starts at one hundred dollars and that's something that you can get unlocked By the way if you are giving phone as a gift. I do recommend buying an unlocked. Phone it's probably the quickest and easiest way to go about it since you just have to swap existing some card and you're ready to go so that would kind of with that line of phones. The moti line would definitely be something. I would look out for this. Holiday season is a phone. Even a gift anymore is that is that too personal of a device for you to go out and actually get for someone. I sure why not. I totally don't disagree with receiving a phone as a gift. I think it's perfectly as long as you go about it the right way. Make sure that's what they're it matches the needs that they want and And you look very closely at all the fine print in terms of carrier contracts and stuff like that. I think it would be a great gift.
How to Survive the Holidays Debt-Free
"Episode is a reboot from two years ago. But i think this message is just as important now. I know i have definitely had some money. Fomo and i have to make sure that. I am not making too many emotional purchases especially this time of the year so i do a couple of things i i said a few rules. If i know it's an emotional. Spend i give myself twenty four hours before i hit the buy button so i put the item in the cart away. Twenty four hours. And then decide if something. I really want to buy and i also allow myself. No more than two emotional spends per month with the cap on how much i can spend. You're probably thinking. Okay sean why go through. All of this will. it's simple. I just have a ton of money goals like you. And i don't wanna get trapped into fomo spending. We're all guilty of it. Though so my other rule is that this is a shame free zone. Let's just make sure fomo spending isn't are spending this holiday season. Okay onto the episode. Did you know that the average person takes on between three hundred eight hundred dollars in debt during the holidays. That might not seem like a lot. I could see where some people might take on more dad. Maybe some a little bit less but if it isn't paid off in a short period of time it could turn into even more dead not how the debt starts to snowball. And i think it's really more about the mindset behind all of this as well behind holidays you we get so riled up with the and all the stuff we've got a bye for co workers and friends and family and spouse boyfriend girlfriend mean he just gets crazy out of control but as our guest mosh from status. Money says how we hack. Our minds is really important to how we get ready for the holidays off pun. Intended here we got to get our game face on to win the war against holiday debt. So montage he's been on the podcast before but he's gonna show us how to breach the holidays without debt and also very interesting while using spending data from your peer groups might just be the missing link. You need to keep your budget in check. We're here to talk about the holidays. It feels like they're just rolling You know it's going to be holiday time before we blink are is seemingly and it's always stressful time. I know with a lot of listeners with their budget. I've had a hard time myself. I think we all have at times during the holidays trying to stay in budget. But i really wanna talk about you know. Are there ways that we can restore the holidays without racking up debt. How do we do this. I think we gotta hack our minds a little bit here during the holidays i get this urges. I'm sure most people do to be very generous and we want to be generous. And and how much we give and we want to be thoughtful gift But at the same time we have to be a little bit cautious about not overextending art though and you know this is kind of a place. Typical gift giving where. You're not sure you know how much you should spend your. You're not sure whether somebody's gonna get you an amazing gift and spend hundreds of dollars and and all you got them you know. Was you know keychain. So i i think We have to be very careful about looking at all the information that we have available And being very thrifty in in how we give people thoughtful gift. That is great. Because i know especially if you work in corporate environment and they do the gift giving exchange. There's always unless they set a limit you know. It's that gas guessing game of trying to figure out how much you spend do. I look like a cheapskate. If i don't spend enough for being too extravagant and we could do that. Certainly with friends and family to that's why so many people end up just giving gift cards but what do you think causes the biggest stress around the holidays and budgeting. Is it. just that we feel these obligations or is it that we kind of throw in all of our everything we know about money and we just start spending without even knowing how much we're spending. I do think a lot of people. Don't it's kind of like cheating on a diet. So you think well what the hell. It's the holidays right and And you spur splurge a little bit but then a little bit turns into a little bit more And before you know it it's january and you've got a lot of credit card bill pay
